In brief: Mouth biting

It sounds like moderate-severe anxiety.
Please make sure you have a therapist to discuss your stressors with (good and bad!) your doctor can help you as well, sometimes with short or long term anti-anxiety medicines which really can help. Obviously, there are other health conditions that cn cause these symptoms, so make sure you get a complete evaluation by your doctor.
